The Lower North Shore region encompasses the municipalities of Manchester-by-the-Sea, Beverly, Danvers, Peabody, Salem, Marblehead, Swampscott, Lynn, and Nahant. The region is characterized by densely developed town centers, and suburban areas fringed with wetlands and salt marshes. The North River, the largest freshwater source to Salem Sound, flows through the low-lying cities of Peabody and Salem. Environmental impacts of stormwater runoff, wastewater discharges, intense recreational usage, and climate change challenge these communities in their efforts to sustain safe swimming beaches, support fishing, and preserve coastal habitat.
